Every year the AMS Office of Financial Aid sponsors events; to provide information about the financial aid process and loan borrowing at the medical school, to offer information about personal financing, or to help students prepare for graduation and residency. The Get Your Bearings: Financial Literacy Series includes topics to familiarize students with the basics of financial planning and to provide tools to help develop a personal financial strategy throughout their medical school years and beyond.
